in the papers today that president obama's meeting with labor leaders who are insisting that the president not change entitlements. no cuts to medicare and social security. do you agree? guest: i think some adjustments are going to have to be made. social security today is a lot different than it was when franklin roosevelt first instituted it. it's not as if it's etched in stone. that said, it's got to be a balanced approach. i think that's what the president is going to say. the two actually save the entitlement programs the nation is on the road to bankruptcy, to save them we have to make some adjustments. but you have to do it in a way that also calls for additional revenue. and how you do that through tax restructuring and possibly asking those who have been most successful in society to do a bit more to help get the deficit down, that balanced approach is what i think he's going to insist on. i think you'll find both sides, the my party, will be saying no changes to entitlements whatsoever. and the far right they'll be saying, no revenue whatsoever. what needs to happen, what ultimat

won ohio, turns out the electoral vote count would have gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio. recall back in 2004 when john kerry lost to george bush he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but for half the people that could fit in the ohio state stadium called the horseshoe i would be president today. it was a very narrow victory. i do think there were some reasons that are almost technical that some of you understand well. there are some folks here from silicon valley who are very good at social media and their turnout efforts, the democrats, were quite effective. if you look at the numbers, after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expected. i would say better than they expected based on their polling and their sampling. so, you know, they did a better job than we did getting their voters to the polls. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio and still came within two points. the technology included so-called orca system. some of you maybe read about that in the last couple days which wa

you look at barack obama's first meeting with angela merkel were the global economy was on fire, she laid down the gauntlet. we're not going to play by your rules. we're not want to spend like you're telling us to and it has been very interesting to look at the limits we have even influencing a nation like a german name. in brussels, do you think america has the same way we once had and can influence the international system box i would love to see how you see the challenges ahead but the milly a geostrategic context. >> first, a strong economy is as cruel as a strong military. in this post-financial crisis era, economics and finance are every bit as important those traditional diplomatic and military lepers of policy. the throw weight was the measure of how much could be delivered through nuclear arms. sovereign interest rates are the measure of strength and invulnerability now. this move from a throw rates to interest rates. they knew how much megatonnage we had and it'll merkel can tell you what the spread is in the most recent greek bonds auctioned. requires a change in thinking

the entire arizona law, i just met the e-verify portion," i did not trust you. latinos voted for obama because they did not trust romney on the immigration question, they did not like the rhetoric. there was no reason for this, because like i say, the majority of the american people want to see immigration reform. this is something very important, and it shows why politics has to do with immigration policy. i think the anti-immigration lobby has been very effective in creating the perception that the conservative base is anti- immigrants. that is just not true. poll after poll shows, study after study shows, that the majority of conservatives believe in border security but also believe in immigration reform. before the primary season we had -- we commissioned a study to study immigration views of likely republican primary voters. your tea partyers, people committed to the conservative movement. as long as you have border security there, the support legalization, a path to citizenship, a guest worker program. included a bad word "amnesty," and when we included boris security with amnest

obama allows it to happen, what kind of catastrophe are you talking about? i'm kind of concerned? so negatively will this affect the industry? how bad will it really be out there on wall street and main street? >> guest: well, let's say there are a bunch of people where the congress is involved, democrats and republicans have a role to play in whether we resolve this or not. the fact that we litigate to this extent, we are leaving the american people what the risks exposed with the fiscal squibb on time, it wants be outraged that it's generated. the fiscal cliff is a problem. you go over the cliff and the consequences can be beautiful% of gdp growth due to automatic cuts by six or $700 billion. the day after that, the market could fall seven or 800 points but washington will get the message. what i fear and what i think is the risk is that they will fix it with a patch that is short-term, it's not substantive, it doesn't have a lot of nutritional content to it and we are going to be right back in again and again. markets will lose confidence. we will gradually lose our global credibi
